Netflix has released a brand new trailer for the upcoming action comedy The Man From Toronto, and it looks set to be a wild one.
Starring two familiar faces – Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson, no less – the film sees 'the world's deadliest assassin and New York's biggest screw-up' get mistaken for each other 'at an Airbnb rental'.
Check out the trailer below:
Hart and Harrelson will be appearing alongside Ellen Barking and The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco, while Patrick Hughes (The Hitman's Bodyguard) is in the director's chair.
Netflix's synopsis reads: "A case of mistaken identity forces a bumbling entrepreneur to team up with a notorious assassin known as The Man from Toronto in hopes of staying alive."
Speaking about the film, director Hughes told Entertainment Weekly: "This is an action thriller, high stakes, but unfortunately, the safety of Homeland Security is in the hands of a bumbling idiot, and that is Kevin Hart.
"His character is someone that essentially just stepped into the wrong movie, and I had so much fun exploring that with Kevin. He's pretending to be this 'Man from Toronto' but he doesn't like blood and doesn't like violence; he doesn't like anything to do with this world. He's just an idiot that works at a boxing gym – or actually, he doesn't even have a job anymore because he got fired."
Of course, you can't have two huge characters like Hart and Harrelson alongside one another without it turning into some sort of buddy comedy. As Hughes put it: "I'm a huge fan of buddy comedies, and I love how, at the end of the day, it's always like a love story between two people that are polar opposites.
"Kevin Hart's character is like a wet noodle who needs to find strength to stand up in the world because it's been walking all over him. On the flip side of that coin, the 'Man from Toronto' is someone that needs to get in touch with his emotions a little more instead of just killing everybody. Watching them learn from each other is really fun."
The Man From Toronto arrives on Netflix on 24 June.
